Like so many other reviewers, we were touring the UA campus so the location couldn't be better. The staff was very friendly, always saying hi as we walked in and out. The rooms were VERY clean, and the HVAC fan created the right amount of white noise for a very restful sleep. The bathroom actually set the room apart, with... More

The hotel was very nice, but I think way too pricey for a Holiday Inn Express. The breakfast was quite impressive, considering the fact that it was free. This will be the best choice for at least the next few months. An Embassy Suites is currently being built in the downtown area.

The gentleman easily booked my government rate room over the phone. The front desk was polite and had restaurant recommendations for the area. The breakfast was a full spread and tasty. There was free wifi and I didn't use the pool. Great stay and I recommend this hotel.

We found the room clean, staff friendly and hotel was a good value for our college visit to Bama. The breakfast was a typical Holiday Inn Express breakfast. The location worked very well for us. If Bama ends up my sons choice for college, we will always stay here while in Tuscaloosa.

We were traveling and decided to stop in Tuscoulasa. We had two very nice, clean rooms in a very empty hotel (time of year). I have great expirence with HIEX and this was no exception. Room was clean, soap smelled nice, and breakfast was good. I would like to see more fruit but it was free! Staff was nice too

This was just a quick stop but we ended up having a great time! Lots of shopping and restaurants! The staff was very hospitable! The rooms are dated but they are kept up well. The malls and the shopping village are within walking distance

This hotel is easy to get to; the rooms are clean and modern and the free breakfast has lots of variety with high quality. I had two minor annoyances: the in-room refrigerator would periodically turn on and off at night, waking me up unless I kept the AC fan on for white noise. Also, the bathroom sink drain would not...
